Food, RDA

Post by Patrick84 on Sun Sep 13 2015, 09:09

Hi something I've wondered since we got Mav,

I measure out the recommended daily amount of his food, yet he doesn't ever really eat that much in a day, I do only feed his breakfast in a bowl some wet food and little kibble then the rest of his food he gets given in a treat ball and kong,

He seems to be growing well and a full expanding tummy when felt.

Should I not worry or feed more in the bowl? I find he prolly has 3/4 of his food yet sleeps through when he would have the last 1/4, I could feed before I proper settle to bed too? As he prolly last eats at 7pm then sleeps through till the morning.

Mav is now 10 weeks 2 days old

Cheers for advice.

I'm not great on kibble/tinned food, or experienced with dogs who don't eat up, but I'd say that as long as he's looking well and is gaining weight properly, don't stress too much.

Is he wormed, by the way?
